North Yorkshire Police are appealing for information following a recent spate of graffiti in Harrogate.

The graffiti has been found at the back of Cheltenham Mount, after having previously been cleaned up, as well as on a shop window on Kings Road.

North Yorkshire Police posted nine pictures of the graffiti on their Facebook page on Thursday, with the post already receiving a number of comments.

A spokesperson for North Yorkshire Police said: “This graffiti is very unsightly and unpleasant for residents and people who work in the area to look at.

“It’s also costly and time consuming to have it removed. We are appealing for anyone who knows who is responsible for this mindless damage to contact us.”

While some have commended the graffiti for being ‘quite artistic’ others have criticised the appearance and placing of the artwork.

Anyone with information should contact PCSO Daniel Smyphe on 101.
